Accessing your virtual machine console allows you to view information about a virtual machine, work with the guest operating system, and perform operations that affect the guest operating system.

You might be required to download and install the VMware Remote Console application. Click OK in the dialog box that appears.


The virtual machine is powered on.


  1. Click My Cloud.
  2. In the left pane, click VMs.
  3. Select a virtual machine, right-click, and select Popout Console.
    If you close or refresh a virtual machine console while you have one or more client devices connected, those devices are disconnected.
